The ceramic artist Wyatt Little prefers his Houston studio to most places in the world, but being on an epic, out-in-nature adventure is a close second. “I usually have to be dragged out of my studio for a vacation, but I’ll happily drop everything and drive 18 hours to head to the mountains,” says Wyatt. Here’s his helpful—and plenty inspiring—recap of a recent trip to the Rocky Mountains so you too can hit new heights.
“If you want to hike the Rockies, I say go for it! It was such a rewarding experience, even for the short time that we were there. Just make sure that you do your research on the weather, have a pack full of snacks and water, and wear hiking boots. We rented microspikes, which are grips that you stretch over your shoes to give you traction on the icy parts of the hikes.”
